Pannier inner bag
« on: October 06, 2013, 01:54:28 AM »
Is anyone using the Triumph accessory pannier or top case inner bags?
Are they worth the cost? Do you know of cheaper alternatives?
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

I bought the Triumph pannier bags for my Trophy. The quality seems to be very nice, but the bags are made from good quality but stiff material and don't mold to the inside of the pannier case, thus taking away some storage space. For my previous bike, a 2010 Concours-14, I bought bag liners from CeeBailey, which were made from thinner material that molded well to the inside of the panniers, and used them for 18 months with no complaints. I tried using the Concours' bag liners in the Trophy's panniers, but since they were too large, I sold them.

I really prefer keeping my clothes in particular in pannier bags since they keep everything clean and well organized while on tour, nor do loose items get dumped out on the ground if I open the pannier to retrieve something. Additionally I don't like to take dirty panniers into the motel rooms since the dirt could spread around or I could scratch them.

Although I have the Trophy top case, I decided not to get the bag liner for it, since I prefer to keep things organized in small stuff bags with drawstrings. Listing the content on the outside of the stuff bag with a Sharpie helps me find items quickly.

Although I like the Triumph bag liners well enough, if CeeBailey or someone else made bag liners in the correct size, similar to those for the Concours-14, I might well switch.

same opinion as Don about perceived quality but lack of flexibility to perfectly fit in. We much preferred the ones we had for the ST 1100, sold by Honda

I have the pannier and top box liners.

Great quality, but yes, a little awkward to get into and shut due to the rigidity of them. You do get used to them though.

Made my recent trip round Europe much easier. Clothing was organised, clean and dry. Much lighter to carry stuff to the rooms in the hotels

Same for me, and I have sides and top box liners. Great outside the pannier/top box, a bit inflexible to put in the casings. Much better than carrying the full casings around. Would prefer something a little softer (used cheap shopping bags before, they worked a treat, but you look like a pauper carrying them into ritzy accomodation.

I had a Nike sports bag medium size laying around so I tried it in the pannier and it fitted perfectly, I tried to find one to match but couldn't but at our local outlet store I found an Asics one the same size so when we went on a tour she had the Asics and I had the Nike one we didn't get muddled up whos was whos and they worked perfectly. I had a large general use sports bag and that fits very well in the top box, so whilst I did intend to buy the luggage set I now wont be.

We use the liners all the time. As CB says, easy to use and carry around when away on a trip.
